I met Athena's gaze. "If it's all the same to you, I was hoping I'd be talking to Mrs. Wolfe,"
"I'm Alpha, so you can talk to me," Athena growled.
I scanned the courtyard in silence, hoping my lack of a response would annoy Athena, before heaving a sigh. "Okay, your majesty,
it's obvious why I want to join, isn't it?"
Athena didn't answer, only watched me with the same cold expression.
"Real smart, you are." I limped forward, "I'm sick of being a loner. It's been five years since Oliver's death, good riddance to him, so wouldn't you say it's time I get a second chance?"
"This wouldn't be your second chance. You betrayed us, then the FWG, and you probably would have betrayed Oliver had he not been killed. I see no reason for us to trust you,"
"I could be useful. I know about this conflict going on with Lynch. It's obvious we're about to engage in another war,"
"Nonsense." Athena snapped. "This isn't war,"
"Not yet, it isn't, but just you wait," I let those words sink in before speaking again.
"Tell you what. You let me in, even if just for a trial period, and I undo my curse on Lea,"
yea I know in the story you made Lea already back alive but since you haven't mentioned it here I'm just doin this hope you don't mind.
